HIGGS: LaSalle Pride ready to reinvent itself

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Celebrating history does create a sense of community pride and it affects how we live in our community today. The sharing of records, information, photographs and ideas builds a strong sense of community among neighboring residents and Teresa Lasher Winslow believes in sharing. She has started a discussion of this aspect with various historical and preservation organizations. Hopefully this will culminate in an annual or semi-annual meeting of the minds to work together to promote and preserve our local history. Three cheers for LaSalle Pride for recognizing that we are where we came from and for adopting a new lease on the life of their organization to promote their history as an integral part of our entire community.

Speaking of history, please find time this busy holiday week to attend the continuing lecture series presented by the Friends of Local History and featuring Niagara Falls Fire Department Battalion Chief Dan Boland and the history of the Niagara Falls Fire Department up to 1955. It will take place at 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Main Street Public Library Auditorium.

Norma Higgs serves with the Niagara Beautification Commission and Niagara Falls Block Club Council.
